Q: My daughter has had symptoms of autism since her 15 month old vaccines. She does not talk well and has many behavioral difficulties. Is there any treatment techniques in osteopathy that are helpful with this diagnosis?
A: I have had several children come to me with developmental delay or autism that had minimal speech and multiple behavioral disorders. True osteopathy performed as it was created, utilized nature and animals in the treatment process. Many prescriptions included activities out in nature or interaction with animals. I use myofascial release and craniosacral therapy to balance the structure and then ask nature to help with the rest.
